Recent advances in areas such as biomaterials, biomechanics, rehabilitation robotics, medical imaging processing, informatics, and communications have enabled medical practitioners to provide better healthcare. Rapid proliferation of novel technologies such as smart homes, wearable devices, and patient specific implants, along with innovations in biomedical and data analytics, have empowered patients to monitor and manage their own health. As medical technology is becoming increasingly prevalent and essential, there is a growing need for advanced biomedical engineering programs in Canadian Universities. Carleton's PhD program in Biomedical Engineering addresses this demand. Students solve advanced biomedical problems through a combination of thesis research, coursework, directed and individual study, and various forms of oral and written presentations. Biomedical research can be conducted with clinical and industrial collaborations, leading novel devices suitable for commercialization.
